Man Notices Shark In The Shallows, Goes In For A Closer Look
This is the crazy moment an experienced diver paddles perilously close to a 14ft long great white shark stranded in shallow waters outside his home.
Many avoid going into open waters out of fear of encounter with some of the oceans predators , like sharks or maybe jellyfish. But what would you do if you actually encountered a species of ocean life very close to the shore? First of all, you should consider yourself lucky to be treated with such an encounter!
Daredevil Dale Pearson ignored all danger when he waded into the Sea of Cortez, Mexico, on May 27 after he spotted what he initially thought was a hammerhead shark. Approaching carefully, Dale and buddy Eric Mack realise it is actually a mammoth great white they think has been caught in a net before noticing two huge propeller wounds on its back.
Deciding the shark isn’t stuck but feeding on stingrays as it circles through the water, Dale gets an up-close look as the predator thrashes its huge tail before flashing its vicious teeth. Dale, co-owner of Pearson Brothers Winery, said: “To see such a huge shark in basically my front yard was quite unnerving.
Sometimes, all you need is a close encounter with a white shark to get your heart racing, blood pumping and adrenaline rush high on the ceiling! Footage shows the unique adventure these two guys experienced when a massive white shark decided to pay them a visit on the beach. For these guys it all turned out well as they live to share their remarkable story of their encounter with the glorious, merciless, Great White Shark.
Sharks usually get stranded close to shore if they get hit by a boat, after which tides might move this predator even closer to shore, so beware!
